To change the fuel pump you have to drop the tank, which includes demounting the exhaust pipes, taking off the sway bar and the one that's above it, and all the metal shielding that surrounds the tank. when the tank is off just take off the ring that keeps it in and switch the pump out for a new one. then just replace everything and there you go. And hopefully your tank is empty or you will be taking off the back axle also ;) good luck and if all else fails drop the tank halfway and cut an access panel in your trunk that is 7in wide by 10in long....makes things easier.

Sounds like faulty fuel pump or fuel regulator.

1998 chevy s10 driving along and engine shut down.after sitting 10 started but was rough.went 100.ft and it shut off again.sat for a started and ran a couple miles like nothing was ever...

if it shuts off while driving and will not start back up for at least 10 minutes, then it may be the crank sensor doing this. is check engine light on! if so get it scanned to find problem code. if no scanner, auto-zone will scan for free. if light is on. CPS symtoms are: car dies and won't re-start till it cools down, or won't start at all. good-day ! crank sensor timing will be out of sync. it controls timing and sends info to pcm.

1998 Chevy Cav.

The reason you have that code is because the engine is running rich. I would pull the plugs out and check them also check the plug wires. also when have you changed the fuel filter. check the fuel pressure may have a bad pump.
